a reunification of human beings with the angels

It is 11:49 AM Tuesday late morning here by Lake Michigan. It is a cold cloudy gray day. It is suppose to rain this afternoon.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. Carol got up around 7 o'clock AM. She left around 7:55 AM to meet a friend for breakfast. I ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast and then wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my diary I read till I started falling asleep from a book titled, "Scripture As Real Presence: Sacramental Exegesis in the Early Church" by Hans Boersma.

When Carol got back from having breakfast with a friend we left the house together to do errands. While we were doing errands we visited thrift stores so I could look at their used books. I found three used books this morning to add to our library-

"Poet And Dancer" a novel by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala

"New York Mosaic: Three Novels" by Isabel Bolton ("Do I Wake Or Sleep", "The Christmas Tree", & "Many Mansions")

"Pentimento" a memoir by Lillian Hellman

Carol and I were home from errands around 11:30 AM and now it is 11:58 AM. Carol and I are still both sick with a bad cold. Carol works tonight and then is off a couple of nights. Existence keeps decaying.

I plan to do nothing today but pray for health.

Last night I watched television with my wife and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I will close to feel sick.

"[23] Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
[24] Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
[25] Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
[26] My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
[27] For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
[28] But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works." Psalm 73:23-28

God My Supporter And My Hope

God, my supporter and my hope,
My help for ever near,
Thine arm of mercy held me up,
When sinking in despair.

Thy counsels, Lord, shall guide my feet
Through this dark wilderness;
Thine hand conduct me near Thy seat,
To dwell before Thy face.

Were I in Heav’n without my God,
’Twould be no joy to me;
And whilst this earth is my abode,
I long for none but Thee.

What if the springs of life were broke,
And flesh and heart should faint?
God is my soul’s eternal rock,
The strength of every saint.

Behold, the sinners that remove
Far from Thy presence die;
Not all the idol gods they love
Can save them when they cry.

But to draw near to Thee, my God,
Shall be my sweet employ;
My tongue shall sound Thy works abroad,
And tell the world my joy.
